This page lists Kunwok verbs. For information about the various forms of the verb, please see Verb Conjugations. Note that verbs sometimes incorporate nouns, e.g. bolknan (country-look, ie look around), bowurlhke (water-burn, ie boil). Sometimes, the meaning mightn't be predictable from the parts, e.g. bolkmang (country-get, ie arrive).

When the meaning of a verb is predictable from its parts, we don't bother listing it. You need to strip off the incorporated noun when looking up the verb. For example, to find the past perfective for "bolknan", look up "nan" to find "nang" then you have it: "bolknang".
